Windows Media Player either hangs or crashes with Windows 8 CP

Reported by: ed2010 Owned by:
Priority: major Component: WDDM
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.10 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

Host is 32bit Win XP SP3 Guest is a clean install of x64 Windows 8 CP. Winsat and Windows Media player run fine before install Guest Addtions.

After installing Guest Additions, "winsat formal" fails with OpenGL Error: Assertion failed: thread, file D:\tinderbox\add-4.1\src\VBox\Additions\common\crOpenGL\pack\packspu_context.c, line 195

Also Windows Media Player either hangs or errors with a stopped responding error. Windows media center does not play video either.

I managed to play video in the Metro "Video" app, so this seems to be Media Player specific.

I've attached a copy of the winsat output.

The dump file is 56megs and uploaded here:  https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?cid=a2a277a857b771a2&resid=A2A277A857B771A2!164&parid=A2A277A857B771A2!138&authkey=!

  • Component changed from other to WDDM
  • Summary changed from Winsat crashes with Windows 8 CP to Windows Media Player either hangs or crashes with Windows 8 CP

winsat crashes are tracked with ticket #9267. Please give a try to the test build of VBox Guest additions posted here https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/9267#comment:102 , that should solve the problem you're seeing.
Please give it a try an let me know via ticket #9267 whether it solves winsat problems.
Please submit any further comments on winsat issues to ticket #9267.
I will keep this ticket openned and use it for tracking Windows Media Player issues you report.
Let me know if the test build makes any difference with the Windows Media Player issue well.

I also have the WMP issue with Win7 guests.

ok, I've added the WMP dump from Win7 Embedded.

comment:4 Changed 2 years ago by ed2010

I applied VirtualBox-4.1.10-76795-Win.exe to a clean install of x64 Windows 8 CP.

WMP still errors with a "Windows Media Player has stopped responding" but now WMP closes without hanging. I do not have to use task manager to close it.

Event Manager reports this about the error

  • System
    • Provider
      [ Name] Application Error
    • EventID 1000
  • EventData
    wmplayer.exe
    12.0.8250.0
    VBoxOGLpackspu-x86.dll
    4.1.11.0
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe
    C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\VBoxOGLpackspu-x86.dll
    2c0118bf-6e02-11e1-a10b-080027e38b95

Windows Media Center does not play the video either, but consumes 25% cpu and no other IO. It closes if "X"'d without having to use task manager

The Metro "Video" app will play the winsat.wmv.

Here's a link to the logs and dump

I'll post the winsat info in https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/9267

Here is a test build of VirtualBox Guest Additions that should solve the wmplayer crash problem.  http://www.virtualbox.org/download/testcase/VBoxGuestAdditions_4.1.11-76867.iso Let me know how it goes.

I can confirm. It will not install in Win 8 CP x32 or x64.

@Andre.Ziegler, ed2010: Could you please provide some more log files for the driver installation issue? Please see https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/MSI_Logging section "Driver Installation Log" on how to achieve that. Thank you!

I've added my logs. But I can't see any failure.

comment:11 Changed 2 years ago by misha

Thanks a lot for the info. The failure indeed was not that obvious. In any way we've fixed it and will provide you a test build shortly..

Here is a link to the test build which includes installation fix:  http://www.virtualbox.org/download/testcase/VBoxGuestAdditions_4.1.11-76937.iso
Please give it a try.

It installs fine on 32bit and 64bit Win 8 CP. Windows Media Player plays wmv and mp4 media files.

Now, WMP plays the files fine when WMP is maximized. When WMP restored/windowed, it not only stutters but it jumps backwards and forwards several frames. Should I open another ticket for this, seeing as WMP is actually playing?

setup works, WMP plays the WMV file correctly and WinSAT also works fine :)

1 thing which annoys me a bit is, that setup doesn't detect if you have selected WDDM driver last time and tells me the warnings (Do you really want WDDM driver or use Direct3D instead) over and over again during upgrade.

Let's keep the discussion of this issue here for now. I will try to reproduce it here and will get back to you..

I agree this could be annoying. This warning dialog is added as a temporary measure though, until the WDDM driver becomes ultimately stable and WDDM-based D3D works at least as good as XPDM for all supported D3D apps,
in other words, this warning dialog should be removed finally in a [hopefully] near future.

Is this issue still relevant? Could you please try VBox 4.3 and 4.3 Additions to see if it fixes remaining WMP issues for you?
